772nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Taito Publisher: Taito Sometimes, you realise you just have to play these light gun games, and at that point you realise you’ve got to compromise. I’m about to tackle Operation Wolf, which is one of those, and so I’ll be […]

771st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Origin Systems The Ultima series of games rather intimidates me. The first game in the series was still fairly primitive, while as an MMO Ultima Online is more of an outlier than you’d expect from the genre. However, that […]

770th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox/PC/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Double Fine Productions Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve been creating a bit of my buffer for these write ups, which has the handy side effects that I can use Christmas to play some longer games, rather than using it to catch up […]

769th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Spike Publisher: Spike/Agetec/505 Games I don’t get wrestling. I’m not even talking about fakeness or performances, I don’t really get the appeal of watching people fight. I think I struggled with that in the previous WWE game we discussed. Fire Pro […]

768th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games I’m playing this set of one hundred’s GTA game nice and early. The final few don’t have quite as much staying power – The Lost and Damned, today’s entry, is an expansion pack sequel for […]

767th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Firaxis Games Publisher: 2K Games I’ve played the original X-Com series for the blog, including the city focused sequel, and while I still loved the basic formula, I struggled with the interface and difficulty of the original. A few years into this […]

766th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo I’ve been bad in playing DS games, not getting to them as often as I should – even though they’re as often great for watching TV with or similar. What doesn’t help is that it feels like they’re […]

765th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: ICOM Simulations Inc Publisher: Mindscape/Kemco As time went on, the adventure has continued to evolve – and while interactive fiction was the medium of story telling, it’s just not as attractive as graphics bring in. For that reason, games started introducing some […]
